Added Value: Live in SmartCity, at the Heart of Startup Nation


"An accelerator of emerging ecosystems around the world" (Saul Singer), Israel is a hotbed for visionaries. There are approximately 200 social businesses in the country, running activities at a scope of an estimated $50 million annually, and operating within a broader startup eco system of about 1,000 new ventures a year—second only to the US (Global Startup Ecosystem ranking, the 'Startup Genome' project).

At the heart of this hub is Tel-Aviv-Jaffa, who won "World Smart City" Award (2014) for its investment in creative platforms for innovation, including dozens of international startup accelerators, an impact entrepreneurship network, and civic technological infrastructure and services.
